To choose the best brunette hair dye, you should take into account your current hair color, skin tone, and whether your hair has been colored in the past. You can easily dye your hair at home utilizing many of the boxed dye kits that are available at stores, or go to a professional stylist and have him or her do it for you. This will depend on factors such as your budget and the risk you are willing to take with your hair. There are different types of brunette hair dye including semi-permanent and permanent, and they will affect your hair in different ways.

Your current hair color and skin tone are big things to think about when choosing the right hair dye. If your hair is naturally more golden, you will look better with a hair dye that has some gold or red in it. Alternatively, if your natural hair color is a cooler tone, you should choose a brunette hair dye that has ashy qualities. The same rule applies for your skin tone, so ask someone to help you if you are having trouble determining whether you are warm- or cool-toned.


Buying dye from a store is a good choice if you are on a budget. There are many colors and brands available to choose from, so you should not have a problem finding something you like. When dyeing your own hair, you should choose a brunette hair dye that does not stray too far away from your current hair color. Four or five shades is enough to notice a difference but not do extensive damage or come out incorrectly. If you are looking for a more drastic change, you should visit a professional hair stylist because he or she will be able to help you without so much trouble.

If you have colored your hair recently, dyeing it again might cause damage, so you should choose a brunette hair dye that is gentle on hair. There are rinses available that are known as semi-permanent that will color your hair for approximately a month before washing out. This is also a good idea for individuals who are attempting to cover gray hair, as the gentle formulas will not cause damage but will cover the grays for a time. Permanent hair color can be used for a longer-lasting color and works well for individuals who have not colored their hair recently.
